Monaye and Shemiah are a pair of sisters you won’t soon forget! Get to know more about this music appreciating Monaye! A talented performer, singing along to Ed Sheeran’s “Simply” is one of her favorite things to do, and she has fun bopping along with Sara Bareilles. Monaye also enjoys dancing as part of her church’s choir called praise dance. A game or two of bean bag toss or a tricky word search is sure to put Monaye in a good mood. Art, particularly drawing and sketching, are activities that make her happy. Cats and dogs make quick friends around this girl, and she loves anything pink. Hot wings, french fries, and chocolate ice cream are all delicious things Monaye enjoys eating. She is always up for a trip to McDonald’s to indulge in a McFlurry. For Monaye, her ideal family “would have a pet dog, and a family would have laughter.” She is respectful towards adults, and her foster mother states that she is a spiritual child. Monaye gets along well with peers. She has friends at school, church, and in her neighborhood. Monaye desires to spend another vacation in Branson. As a seventh-grader, she appreciates math and reading. Shemiah is a lively girl with fun energy! Playing with L.O.L dolls is always a good time for this unicorn lover. Coloring with pink, yellow, and blue colors is another interest for Shemiah. When rainclouds fill the sky, this girl fills up with delight as she is keen on playing in the rain. When hunger strikes, Shemiah has a hearty appetite for her favorites like pizza, salads with ranch dressing, apples, oranges, grapes, and strawberries. A positive child, she always tries her hardest. She has good relationships with adults and peers. Shemiah wishes to have her ears pierced (it might be her biggest wish!) and learn how to swim. She also wants her family to be “kind, fun, and one you can feel safe in.” As a third-grader, she loves school. Monaye and Shemiah would do best in a Christian family residing in an urban area; however, their caseworker will consider all family types. They have significant connections they will need to maintain following placement. We will only accept inquiries on this duo of sisters, as they will be placed together. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services. For Missouri children, both home studied and non-home studied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only homestudied families from other states should do so.
